Rolled by the Queen

A Land Rover formerly owned by the Queen comes to auction

The Queen is a well-known lover of Land Rovers and is often seen driving them on her various estates. Now, with the forthcoming auction of 2002 Defender 110 TDS County that was previously used on her Sandringham estate at the Historics at Brooklands auction on 8th March, any ardent royalist has the opportunity to acquire one of her vehicles.

 

Priced with an estimate of £26,000 to £35,000, this Land Rover has covered some 35,330 miles and was customised for the Queen with heated seats, a slightly raised suspension, electric windows and a specialist body colour.

This vehicle was used for shooting parties held on the estate and on one occasion it was rolled during such an event. “Damage to the front wing and paintwork resulted” according to the Historics catalogue description and the car was “discreetly sold on”. During restoration, “a Sandringham shooting map and shotgun cartridges were found in the glove compartment”.

 

A Google search on “royalty and rolling” comes up with an entry about “Prince Harry” becoming the new urban slang for “smoking a marijuana cigarette”. The sale of this Land Rover, however, is probably the one and only time when the Queen and “rolling” will be mentioned in the same sentence .
